URA proposes new residential sites in Sengkang, Woodlands and Bukit Panjang, up to 14,000 new dwellings

Two other parcels re-zoned for domestic development are at Woodlands Drive 17 and Bukit Panjang Ring Road.

The land parcel at Woodlands rests opposite the Singapore Sports School and can yield 1,000 dwellings, according to Lee. Opposite the roadway, a government land sale (GLS) location at Champion’s Way was offered for $904 psf per story ratio in September 2023 to City Developments Ltd. The place can be turned into a 350-unit exclusive non commercial project.

Five land parcels were rezoned as part of the most recent amendment to URA’s Master Plan 2019. Three of the spots are in Sengkang, one in Woodlands and the other in Bukit Panjang. The changes are “to facilitate residential project that will sustain the need for real estate in the places and also enable more residents to have much simpler easy access to features and public transportation, states URA.

The easternmost parcel furthermore comprises of a small area zoned for household, another location for a park, and a planned area zoned for health and medical care. The locations in this parcel might be developed much higher typically than the previous spot, with a bigger gross plot ratio of 4.0 or 4.2.

The westernmost parcel is proposed to be zoned as a pure housing site (based on detailed arranging). Huttons’ Lee thinks the westernmost location in Fernvale can house an MRT station for a brand-new line spreading from Woodlands to Greater Southern Waterfront and passing through Sengkang. If so, the brand-new station will certainly serve the upcoming house in Fernvale. “However, it may take years for thorough preparation on the brand-new track to be realized,” he includes.

Different housing development places in the area consist of those on Anchorvale Street, which might generate in between 6,000 and 7,000 brand-new dwellings, adds Lee. Thus, anywhere from 10,500 to 12,000 brand-new houses could possibly be made available in Sengkang in the coming future, including exec condominiums and exclusive housing.

The center location contains pockets of residential locations, a recommended location for a park, and a proposed spot for a church. Most of the sites in this parcel are going to have a gross plot ratio (GPR) of 3.9 or 4.2.

The parcels in Sengkang remain in the Fernvale subzone, restrained by the Tampines Expressway to the North, Sengkang West Drive to the East, Fernvale Avenue to the South and Jalan Kayu to the West. 2 roads detached the three parcels. “The Fernvale location is an extension of Sengkang town and brings residents closer to Seletar Aerospace Park,” claims Lee Sze Teck, senior supervisor of data analytics at Huttons Asia.

On the other hand, the site at Bukit Panjang is currently inhabited by Beacon Primary School. Lee estimates that the location can produce 900 to 1,000 residence units and likely be new Built-to-Order condos.

The 3 parcels in Sengkang have the possible to be become a total of 4,500 to 5,000 new dwellings in the future, Lee quotes. He strongly believes the residential units are going to be a mix of HDB, exec condos (ECs) and personal housing.
